Recommended to Margaret by: Missy Tippens
One thing is that I love Missy as person and wish I had met her earlier in Georgia before I had to move. Another is that I already knew that I enjoyed her writing as I had read and loved A Forever Christmas two years ago so I expected to enjoy A Family for Faith. What I did not expect was just how much I enjoyed this book. I could not put it down and loved it beginning to end. This book is just as good as any Debbie Macomber story that I have experienced through novel or film. I cannot wait for ...more

Another great book by Missy. This is a fun story inspired by a father/daughter encounter on a plane. Gabe is the father of a pre teen and struggling. Faith is the neighbour who offers help.
Chelsea the daughter gets together with one of the ladies from church and they start praying for a wife for Gabe. this is where it starts to get really interesting. I love how Chelsea wants the best for her dad. Faith is also struggling with some past issues but is a real help for Chelsea. Both Faith and Gabe

A Family for Faith by Missy Tippens was an excellent read. I usually find many Christian books lacking in substance and more ‘preachy’ but this book had a great storyline, where you really got to know the characters. I really enjoyed the teenager Chelsea, and felt for her as well as her father Gabe. Faith herself has some problems with her son. The two families tie in nicely, it was beautifully written, and I know that I will pick up another book by Missy Tippens when I see it!

I absolutely loved this book! At times it was lighthearted and funny, at others it was heartfelt and touching. Missy Tippens created such loveable characters with Faith, Gabe, and Gabe's 12-year-old matchmaking daughter, Chelsea. This was a beautifully written story that I thoroughly enjoyed!

A Family for Faith is Missy’s fourth book for the Love Inspired line and it might be my favorite of Missy’s books. I found the whole premise fascinating and not done in Christian fiction before (that I can remember). When I read the authors note at the end of the book and found out how the idea came about I enjoyed the premise ever more! The characters were real and very relatable and as I read the book Faith really grew special to me because I saw a lot of some of my actions in her. I also foun ...more

What a story! The struggles of Faith and Gabe dealing with their fears while God draws them together is so real. None of us are perfect so we all have fears when it comes to love.
Second marriages for both Faith and Gabe for different reasons. With my oldest just remarrying and God's blessing on her wedding there was so much joy. I could feel it for Faith and Gabe in the story as well as for my daughter.
Chelsea lost her Mom. Ben was hurting and made some wrong choices. All the healing that had to

I live in Georgia with my wonderful, supportive, pastor husband (my very own real life hero even though he's not too handy around the house). We have three perfect children. Well, maybe not perfect, but they're loving and fun and are God's greatest blessings. To add chaos to the household, we have two dogs and a cat.

I was a stay-at-home mom for 16 years, writing for about 10 of those years. I own
